Product description


Rethinking the Good threatens to overturn some of our most deeply entrenched beliefs about our various values and practical reasoning.... [It is] an utterly original work of philosophy, almost breath-takingly so. (Shelly Kagan, Yale University)

Rethinking the Good is a genuinely awe-inspiring achievement. Its discussions of a broad range of the deepest and most perplexing issues in normative ethics are unsurpassed in imaginativeness, subtlety, and rigor...Temkin's rich and brilliant book will transform our understanding of many of the most important problems in ethical theory. (Jeff McMahan, Oxford University)

This book is about some of the most profound issues in human life... its challenging and sophisticated arguments will be sources of insight and inspiration for anyone who reflects on them. (Roger Crisp, Oxford University)

Larry Temkin's magnum opus, Rethinking the Good... is unquestionably one of the grandest, most significant, and most profound works on value and practical reasoning ever written. (Jake Ross, The Journal of Moral Philosophy)

The most important work in choice theory and social choice in some time. (Tyler Cowen, MARGINALREVOLUTION)

Rethinking the Good is the most powerful challenge to our understanding of axiology and normative theory in contemporary philosophy to date. Calling it a classic or a masterpiece is an understatement: it is a true milestone with which we enter a new stage in the study of value theory. (Oscar Horta, Law, Ethics, and Philosophy)

...a rich and challenging work, and a profound contribution. (Richard Kraut, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

A real tour de force... (Véronique Munoz-Dardé, The Journal of Moral Philosophy)

Larry Temkin's monumental book Rethinking the Good is by far the most resourceful and penetrating investigation into the various aspects of the value of outcomes to date. (Ingmar Persson, Law, Ethics, and Philosophy)

...[A] great work of philosophy....both groundshaking and crafted with near-perfect of the most important works in ethics to appear in recent decades, sure to be studied closely by philosophers and non-philosophers alike for decades to come...[a] brilliant and exciting book. (Melinda Roberts, Analysis)
